What we offer

Competenz helps thousands of learners gain the knowledge and skills they need to accelerate their careers with on-the-job training and apprenticeships in 37 different industries.

We work with teachers, career advisors, students, and parents to support and assist our future learners by providing careers information, unit standard and resources, assessment and moderation support, gateway, work experience and job opportunities.

Unit standards and Resources

Are you a teacher looking for unit standards and resources for NCEA credit achievement? Please register/login with your school email to get access.


Assessment and moderation

If your school would like to offer Competenz unit standards:

We help you set up your assessment team and understand the unit standards we moderate and how we do this. Then we support that team with resources like assessment guides and professional development workshops. Our School Reporting of Competenz Credits guide helps explain the process.

When your school offers our unit standards, moderation plays an important role in ensuring:

  • your students have gained the skills and knowledge they need
  • assessments are valid, consistent and fair across all schools.

Gateway and work experience

Gateway helps schools give senior students (year 11 and above) opportunities for structured learning in the workplace.

Competenz offers Gateway packages in Engineering, Baking, Forestry and Furniture Making. Enrolments for these packages are open in Term 1 and Term 2 in 2021.

Competenz also works with employers looking for apprentices and can help set up work experience and trials for students. Please contact for further information.
